Creating a Hero That Others Will Follow: How to tell stories that change perceptions about you, your operation and your industry.
 
Storytelling is ancient and embedded into the very core of what makes us human beings. For more than a decade the agriculture industry has been implored to “tell your story,” as a mechanism for helping the outside world understand the complex and treacherous journey of being a farmer in a modern age. During this keynote, Communications Strategist Vance Crowe will discuss why some stories thrive and others are never retold so that the audience can assess the effectiveness of their personal stories and learn what they can do to improve them.
